We are over the moon with this gorgeous Arizona sunset inspired wedding at El Chorro for Shawna and Dave. Photographed by Rachel Solomon, this wedding is inspired by the palette of the vibrant sunset sky and paints the colors beautifully with all the decor, accents, and flowers. Shawna ad Dave met at work when Shawna first started in Chicago. They hit it off and became very close. But after a few cold Chicago winters, Shawna decided to move to the warmer climate of Arizona. Dave followed her out here, and they moved into a home together. During their trip to Sedona for their 3rd anniversary, Dave proposed to Shawna while they were watching the breath-taking sunset! She said yes, and the couple immediately began planning.
Shawna knew she wanted to be married in the fall. Photography and entertainment were key components that the couple wanted to focus on for their classy and whimsical wedding. Rachel Solomon hit all those marks are produced beautiful pictures that we’re elated to share with you! The southwestern vibe and stunning views of Camelback Mountain led the couple to choose El Chorro for their wedding venue. Shades of scarlet red, burnt umber, kitten pink, and dusty blue were all intertwined perfectly to create an effortless and timeless Arizona sunset palette. Guests also adored the mix of florals used to accentuate the desert’s natural beauty. At the end of the night, everyone was grooving away on the dance floor – nobody wanted to leave! Shawna and Dave’s wedding truly exceeded all their expectations for an Arizona desert sunset inspired wedding.
